about

The song is like a cautious approach to a new world or a new beginning. We wanted it to feel like an announcement of sorts, something that opens like a curtain. The blue hour, to us, represents the start or the end of a cycle, in this case also a reflection on who and where we are at this point in time. More importantly maybe, a reflection on where we are going next.

This is my blue hour
This is my sky
Or is it heaven?
I’m searching for the blue light

This is my blue hour
This is my sky
Or is it heaven?
I’m searching for the blue light

For the blue flower
That stands for love and desire
What am I longing for?
Will it take me higher?

Higher, higher

I am a blue bird
And I have the blue sometimes
So I sing about love
Sometimes I see the sea from above

Higher, higher, higher, higher

Queen of the wind
Sapphire eyes
She puffs and I rise
And I rise

Higher, higher, higher, higher

This is my blue hour
This is my sky
Or is it heaven?
I’m searching for the blue light
searching for the blue light

it rings, buzzes & booms when two women have more than two voices, you want to burst when loops, synthesizers, basslines and percussion take over when outfits match the texture of sound your eyes and ears fuse when orchestrated voices enwrap you like velvet and gold it clashes, hums & dances
